    Hi All,
    I have seen a lot of discussions on the list lately
    about double flares from the Iridium satellites.
    Tonight 3/27, I saw two flares from the Iridium 13
    satellite. The first one was at about 19:54 as it was
    traveling across the head of Leo. I would guess it was
    about -1. The second flare was about a minute later
    but not as bright. The satellite had dropped below the
    naked eye limit between the two flares. These flares
    were not predicted by heavens-above for this area.
